The E-flite® Apprentice® S 15e aircraft is an exceptional fitness instructor that’s a blast to fly. At its heart is groundbreaking SAFE™ (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) innovation that makes RC flight extremely simple, even for the least experienced user. Its combination of spatial awareness provides flight envelope protection which includes a degree of security never ever before offered, while its smooth flight capability fights windy conditions so that all you feel is control that’s crisp and responsive. Numerous levels of flight envelope protection are offered that can be lowered or eliminated as your skills development, yet the "panic" function is constantly there to immediately return the model to level flight if you ever lose orientation.

Requiring just minutes to assemble, you’ll value how its peaceful brushless power system provides exceptional efficiency and long flights. Plus it’s constructed to last from light-weight Z-Foam™ material that’s tough enough to handle everyday flying punishment without getting bent out of shape. After you’ve mastered the basics of flight, the Apprentice S 15e can performing a vast array of aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls and even inverted flight. If that’s not homage enough to its adaptability, there’s even a specially designed E-flite Apprentice S Drift Set (offered separately) you can add that turns the Apprentice S 15e into a fantastic floatplane.

All you need to fly the Apprentice S 15e immediately is a DSMX suitable transmitter like the Spektrum™ DX6. Besides ease of usage, it offers essentially unlimited model memory and voice command/alerts for a level of control and security that enhance the Apprentice S 15e perfectly.
